Conceived in homage to Mies van der Rohe's crystalline high-rise concepts of the 1920's, the 1111 Wilshire project will feature prominently in the Los Angeles skyline once complete. The massing of the tower was designed to maximize views and reduce the appearance of bulkiness. A conventional rectangular floor plate was broken in two and slightly shifted to increase the number of true corner units and create a narrow profile while keeping the core and circulation to a minimum.
A channel glass lined podium supports a boutique hotel on the lower floors and open, light-filled residential units above. Several outdoor roof decks are located at various points in the building that provide the residents with breath-taking views all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
